Description Suggest change

Trilogy Buttress provides some of the best multipitch sport climbing in Rock Canyon. Routes extend from three to four pitches on moderate to difficult grades as you ascend over 600 feet of quality rock.

Located in the lower canyon, Trilogy calls to you to leave the top roping crowds behind and experience a bit of rock climbing adventure.

Getting There Suggest change

To get to the base of the Trilogy routes head up the main large scree slope and drainage located to the east of Super Bowl Wall on the right side of the water tower. As you look up the scree you will see that it forks about 500 feet up. The buttress rising out of the fork is Trilogy. The main routes start on the left side about another 100 feet up the left fork.

Descent

Suggest change
The standard way to get down from Trilogy Buttress is to walk off west. From the top, find the obvious trail that heads northwest, which then turns west at the top of the gully that lies to the west of Trilogy. Follow this west, down the west face of Squaw Mountain until reaching the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. Follow the wide path south to the Rock Canyon parking lot.
